About the home
Cosy semi-detached cottage actually in Sherwood Forest - giving access to miles of walks, cycle routes and wildlife.
Lots of nearby attractions for families, including tourist Visitor Centre with cycle hire, Go-Ape Tree-Top Adventure and family events throughout the year. For younger children there is also The White Post Animal Farm, Wheelgate Adventure Park and for the young at heart a Go-Karting track within 5 minutes drive.
Southwell is a lovely small town, with a Minster, Workhouse and all-weather horse racing course.
With plenty of historical country estates - (Rufford Abbey Country Park approx. 1 mile/Clumber Park approx. 7 miles and Newstead Abbey and grounds approx 5 miles). Thoresby Hall is now an hotel, but has lovely grounds and a shopping courtyard.
Antique heaven is at the historical market town Newark-on-Trent, (International Antique fairs held throughout the year), plus markets, river trips and a castle.
You'll find excellent shopping/nightlife in Nottingham City, as well as underground cave tours, 'Tales of Robin Hood' visitor/activity centre and of course the castle!
Maybe you'll just enjoy relaxing in the garden or in front of the log burner!

We had a lovely stay at deerdale lane. The cottage was beautiful, warm, well equipped and spacious. Plenty of space for a highchair and travel cot. The garden was amazing and saw lots of wildlife. The path out to the forest a real bonus. Lots to do in the surrounding area without too much driving. Jane leaves a lovely welcome pack and refunded our deposit the day we left. Can't ask for more than that. Overall, one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in.
